the states include not only the large eastern states of pennsylvania and new york, but also states like mississippi, south carolina, west virginia, wyoming, iowa, all of which use this mid deem charge rather than felony. and what we find in these 13 other states is that there are higher rates of drug treatment participation, lower rates of drug use, and even slightly lower rates of violent and property crime. so again, we can prove we can have safer communities. and then of course there are the unintended consequences of a felony conviction. consequences that really can cause great damage to a young life for many decades out. the very three things that can keep someone successfully in his or her recovery, access to housing, education and employment are put farther out of reach because of a felony conviction, especially in a down economy, someone with a felony has great difficulty even accessing 5 a job that pays minimum wage. putting these felony convictions to a whole population of young people, we really perpetuate a chronic underclass which benefits none of us. and then of course the

of these nine states. in new hampshire. and if you look at north carolina, you can see governor romney had been ahead in north carolina, but the latest poll out of north carolina now shows the north carolina race to be tied 46-46. here's the other number you need to know about north carolina right now. it is that one. 30,000. that's the number of voters who are on the north carolina voting rolls that a self-appointed, supposedly nonpartisan tea party outfit has announced should be stripped from the rolls. 30,000 people need to be dropped off the north carolina voting rolls because the tea party group determined the 30,000 voters are all dead people. and the group is, therefore, challenging those voter registrations now in north carolina with the election less than 50 days away. couple of weeks ago this group calling itself the voter integrity project in north carolina delivered a list of almost 30,000 names to that state's board of elections. the group's leader said that 90% of the names on the list should be taken off the rolls for sure and handed those names to the election officials. they go
